How can you connect with more opportunities globally?
Connecting to the right people at the right time is an essential element of optimum growth, especially regarding new investors, new clients, new opportunities and new partnerships. How you find and manage contacts is a key element of success.
Even when you don't plan to go global right now, fostering cross metro and cross border relationships NOW allows you to have mature and trusted connections for when you are ready to expand. That makes things easier for you and your team, including lowering the risk of cross metro and cross border expansion overall. Plan ahead... Rome wasn't built in a day!
We had a great discussion because Rufiya is talented, global and unstoppable! Listen here.
Rufiya laid out challenges and opportunities, and she emphasized the human element... so important!
KOMPASS is a 70 years old technology company! The firm helps companies find contacts to create new markets around the world.
Apologies that we were not able to get Gazelle.ai in on this discussion, and we rescheduled them for an April 2nd globinar. In their absence, I spoke about some other elements of reaching out to contacts including using Linkedin and warming up the connections.

Rufiya Blank - VP of New Business Development at Kompass North America. Rufiya has done International business for many years and she never gets tired of it. "I travel not only across different countries, but also within different cultures. Every day I believe more and more not in cross-cultural differences, but in cross-cultural acceptance. Working for Kompass helps me to break down barriers to global business and making the world a smaller place for all of us to live and work.
"At Kompass we help companies expand into foreign markets by providing the Global Database research tool EasyBusiness and advertising in 24 languages. I believe that our Global Research, Advertising and Social Selling platforms are the future of Global business.
"Richard Branson said that 'Every company has the potential to change the world, and will not survive if it doesn’t'. Every day I do my small part of the big dream of creating the perfect International world in which people of all genders, colors and cultures can prosper."
